There are nice places to stay in Hazyview area but Ashbourne is probably one of the best due to the quality of accommodation. The view over the hills surrounding is amazing and the bungalows are so nicely and well furnished. Harmony, peace and friendly guests and staff make it an ideal place for taking a rest of visiting Kruger, the... More

On the 17th November 2016, my colleagues and I slept in Ashbourne Lodge. The lady that is managing the place is racist. For the very first time in my life I heard a person called us "you type of people" just because we are black and we are not from overseas. She also told us that she is glad that... More

Racist? No. Behaviourist? Yes. By arriving after 23h00 without any consideration for the other guests, and spending half an hour having a loud debate over "why you have to leave the TV on all night so that you can sleep," is really not "the type of people" we want here. We are not prepared to have our guests stay jeopidized... More

First of all Hazyview is the perfect place to explore the Kruger Park as well as the Blyde River Canon. The Ashbourne is situated beautifully above the city (only five minutes to the city center where you find many restaurants and stores). Rob and Dawne are the greatest host ever! They prepared us lovely picknicks for our early morning game... More

We stayed at Ashborne Country Escape in July of 2016 with a large group of university students at the end of a three-week course in conservation journalism. The rooms and main house were comfortable and luxurious without being stuffy, and our hosts were delightful. A delicious breakfast is included. A fantastic place for couples, families or larger groups, I'll definitely... More

We finished our three-week trip to Kruger at Ashbourne. The location could not have been better. All 20 of us fit into a few different rooms. We could all fit around one big dining table. We did our final presentations in the main room. And then we stayed up talking and finishing the wine in one cottage. Excellent facilities with... More
